aesthetics. people will perceive the aesthetics more than anything else.

startship troopers is a good example: it satirizes fascism but has the aesthetics of fascism, so thats what people perceive.

the boys was the same when conservatives liked homelander. he is the good looking blue eyed aryan with an epic powerful portrayal and those are usually the heroes.

the ‘good guys’ go in murderous rampages all the time in movies. its just usually framed as a good thing. ‘oh those they killed were evil!’, ‘oh the city they destroyed was for the greater good!’

real life isnt so black and white but they do that same framing irl with varying levels of success.

its almost like it needed the exclusives to be worth it

umbrella,
@umbrella@lemmy.ml avatar

it has no games and was plagued by availability/price issues for a BIG while there.

why should anyone buy it?

umbrella,
@umbrella@lemmy.ml avatar

i bought into it and hate that its getting so much praise.

fixing the garbage they released is bare minimum.

locking down consoles to games only always felt stupid when they are basically pcs anyway. they should have been multipurpose machines all along instead of walled gardens.

umbrella,
@umbrella@lemmy.ml avatar

as long as still they make money from it, and people already paid for the game, no they will not.

umbrella,
@umbrella@lemmy.ml avatar

better: they have to release the server software outright.

they are selling the game, and permission to use that server software they require to function at all. it should be included in a game, outright.

expanding this for devices? even better.

umbrella,
@umbrella@lemmy.ml avatar

we can also not pay for their stuff

@umbrella@lemmy.ml avatar

be the change you want to ve in the world, get yuzu and some games on it.

@umbrella@lemmy.ml avatar

that sounds very cheap in the grand scheme of things. imagine if we didnt spend so much with wars.

umbrella,
@umbrella@lemmy.ml avatar

ill be very dissapointed if they succeed.

i hope they keep failing at it.

umbrella,
@umbrella@lemmy.ml avatar

we should push for them to release server software

umbrella,
@umbrella@lemmy.ml avatar

i usually stay away from hollywood and cookie cutter movies and its fine. even then every once in a while something will catch my attention, i think you are just tired of all the really bad movies out there, like your tastes got more refined if you will.

umbrella,
@umbrella@lemmy.ml avatar

release server software and let us self host!!!

they dont even need to foot the cost for anything.

umbrella, (edited )
@umbrella@lemmy.ml avatar

yeah subscriptions are almost always pushed because it makes them more money, not because its more economical to you.

umbrella,
@umbrella@lemmy.ml avatar

i cant wait for AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA games

umbrella,
@umbrella@lemmy.ml avatar

its technically better.

microsoft just made it limited and stupid on purpose to make more money off it. which is more infuriating imo.

umbrella,
@umbrella@lemmy.ml avatar

something i dont see being talked about is the sheer processing power needed for this.

how are they gonna solve that? just requiring you to casually have a couple 4090s?

umbrella,
@umbrella@lemmy.ml avatar

oh no…

umbrella,
@umbrella@lemmy.ml avatar

we just have to do some work on the overhyping a game and preorder part, but its looking like i might pick up this game

umbrella,
@umbrella@lemmy.ml avatar

why do we still care about pokemon

if they dont want us discussing it i guess so be it

umbrella,
@umbrella@lemmy.ml avatar

this is what baffles me. its already a huge hit, why bully fans for even more money?

im sure a big part of this success comes from fans doing things like that for free out of sheer passion for it, and nintendo just comes along to stop it…

i got made fun of when i said microtransactions were a slippery slope and this was gonna end up happening

I’ve replayed rdr2 recently and TAA absolutely DESTROYS the beautiful visuals of the game.

That said stuff like DLSS is a godsend and looks 90% there depending on the situation. Its simply another tradeoff you can make.

My old nvidia can punch above its weight because of it.

umbrella,
@umbrella@lemmy.ml avatar

Still looks better than all alternatives by far though.

edit: second best, just remembered DLAA is a thing whenever its actually implemented.

umbrella,
@umbrella@lemmy.ml avatar

i got plenty of hate when i said years ago this is where the mtx slippery slope would get us

i itched to shit on sony’s ports but they are ok actually, if a little unoptimized.

keep them coming, exclusivity sucks and the ports work well.

umbrella,
@umbrella@lemmy.ml avatar

Sony released recently that people are playing more single player games.

Yet live service multiplayer skinnerbox microtransaction bonanza is probably more lucrative, so…
